The sun was out as I headed out for my run after work. I was especially happy as it has been raining non-stop since this weekend.
Training today consisted of:
2 mile warm up, 8 x 90 second hill repeats at 5K effort with jog recovery back, 2 mile cool down.
I decided to start on the Interurban Trail and run to Boulevard Park for my warm-up and then hit the South Bay Trail for hill repeats. The hill is approximately a 3-4% grade and reminds me of my first training season for Marathon #1 back in 2006. I made quick work of all 8 sets and was happy they felt good.
Here are my splits for each 90 second repeat: 7:33, 7:13, 7:03, 7:09, 7:13, 7:02, 7:12, 7:06
I ran back to my car via the Boulevard and through Fairhaven.
8 miles total.
Oh yeah, if you haven’t heard — I’m currently training for the Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon. 🙂
